    I just found this photo I took this spring. We seeded this yard and had to remove a bunch of big rocks. This was our only alternative to moving them around. This is a big hill but doesn't look like it in the pic. We backed the trailor (in a cul de sac) right up to the edge of the street and let the gate down and it made a level gate to drive on. We would pull these rocks right onto the trailor and then push them to the side and then back off and get another load. Rough day.

    I used mine to pull downed trees after the wild wind storm that devestated Memphis back in July.

    i agree it needed a bath. The pic was taken after a rain storm a couple days before. We had mowed some wet properties earlier that day and had not been back to the shop for a bath.

    I've used my Z's to pull tarps full of leaves before but I never thought/needed to pull rocks!

    Makes it look like your throttle is stuck wide open and you're using a drag brake.:D
  10. Did you do the stone work shown in the pic?
    I have some stone like that from Cincinnati. I have an account on Mulhauser Rd. where I picked up some big stones like that. There's not many stones here in Wilmington.
    I build walkways like this:
    Do you have any stones you don't want?
